My current army consists of
1- Deamon Prince
2- Missle launchers CSM
2- Autocannons CSM
1- Asp champ with power weapon
20- CSM'S with bolters
20- CSM'S with bolt pistol and chainsword
6- CSM'S with melta's
6- CSM'S with Lascannons
6- CSM'S asp champs with power fists and pistol
So far i just play with a few buds who play SM and SoB, hence all the anti power armor. I want to expand my army to more diverse choices.
so far im going to add some raptors, most likley with melta guns. 2-3 h.bolter CSM, rhino, and a pred with autocannon and h.bolter sponsors.
anything else would u add to round this army off?
i add a dread to my IW army, its good for counter assualt, so give it a close combat arm with a heavy flamer, and a lascannon. This makes the opponent think twice before charging your troops that are backed up by this beast. But other then that you have quite a solid force. I don't know about adding the rhino, its much cheaper and better for the IW troop squads to infiltrate right into cover. And IMO your ccw and bolt pistol troops should be used more as a counter assault unit rather then an advencing one.
Thats just my thoughts on IW ..... one of the best shooty armies out there... but don;t forget to hold your ground in assault too... doesn't mean you have to run into assault like a follower of krone, cuz your not.

You have a pretty well equipped force, non-ord. heavy support ceratinly ain't bad but taking some raptors will provide you with a lot of extra options, so I would say 1 Predator, 1 Dreadnought ( PC if you can ) and a sqaud of about 6 raptors, another option is off course getting yourself some terminators.
ya thats what i was thinking. i have allot of lascannons already and ordance. so a dread with PC makes sense. predator with fodder killing weapons i think will be best. and ill be going for 7 raptors ( box set of 5, and then 2 more blisters with assualt ) throw in 2 h.bolter CSM and i think ill be doneOriginally Posted by Dreachon
both you guys dont use rhinos?
I was thinking the same as the above. i use 6 CSM squads in my IW army, and 3 are assault based squads with rhinos. 2 squads of pistol/CC weapon, 1 squads with 2 melta guns. The rhinos all have havoc launchers, and i've found that's excellent vs gaurd and tau. Rhinos give you tactical flexibility, and are great to be sacrificed instead of full squads. when all else falls you deploy defensive with the squads outside the rhinos, and then use the rhinos to move and shot the havoc launcher to pick off troops.
